Trump supporting coup in Venezuela

The opposition leader has declared himself President and promises to find a way to get the country out of it's hyper-inflationary economic death spiral. Trump has recognized the new government. Don't get me wrong -- it's probably a good coup, as Nicolas Maduro is a socialist dictator destroying the country and the opposition leader is promising to fix things instead, but it's still a coup. We can only hope that there will be a relatively peaceful transition of power, followed by successful economic reforms (ie, not socialism) and a return to free (and honest) elections.
